Christmas Traffic was so tight in NYC today, I thought Id cheer up some of the drivers…..
Where’s all the Hanukkah Traffic?
Just a great stretch of weather the last two weeks…Here are some NYC scenes I caught got while you were at work!
Runners were all over downtown sporting their Marathon Medals. I asked the group sitting on the bench(above) how they liked Running NYC for the day. Seems they are not that fond of entering Manhattan…. Brooklyn is King!
I totally understand why!
One of my happy customers…..Puro Chile
One year anniversary
Although this isn’t the actual pod used in the rescue was still exciting to see it at
221 Center Street,
Camilla will be happy to help you! She also invited me to get into the pod for a picture, just in to big of a hurry!
Midtown traffic continues to be an absolute NIGHTMARE especially on the east side. What happened to that incredible Don’t Block the Box campaign? Is it possible drivers read it WRONG and are doing the best they can to BLOCK the BOX? I sat through two GREEN lights before I was able to squezzzzze through!
Finally some Peace and quiet.
I know it may be hard to believe but the East Side Bike way is a great place to get away from it all!
Small Haul NYC…..Powered by Joulebody/Kickstart.
Good luck Yvette!
Got a call from my friend Robert Matson of NYC Recumbent Supply asking if I’d deliver Denise her trike.
Urban Mobility Project/Small Haul delivered this beautiful Greenspeed trike to Denise yesterday!
Good Luck on your ride!
Run or Cycle?
(Greenspeed Magnum runs in NYC Marathon)
So last year, after a lot of campaigning, Denise Lanier, a former Triathlete, now disabled with MS, won the right to compete on a recumbent tricycle. Read on…here
I know why I love crossing bridges so much…
Here are some products we might be making available to you in the near future.
The Long John
Kyle is a cargo bike builder from Human Powered Machines in Oregon. He’s come to NYC to set up shop and start production of the Long John Child/Cargo Carrier. Not only did he come to NYC he rode one of his Long John’s here from the west coast!
We are discussing partnering and getting his product out on the market in NYC this spring! The Long John is made in USA. It’s way lighter and much less expensive than the Dutch version.
Contact us at Urban Mobility Project for more info such as custom child box and weather protection!
We also got a visit from AZUB Recumbent, well established in the Czech Republic. Looking to build a state side presence. They showed up with a double suspension two wheeler and a very speedy looking fold-able trike!
I always see black car drivers spending the whole day sitting and waiting for their masters, all day long. Some of them even a sleep. I always thought I should offer to rent them a bike for an hour or two!
Truckers now have an alternative to sitting around a truck stop. A movement to encourage them to ride bikes as an antidote to their sedentary life is gaining speed. Scott Grenerth owns and operates an 18-wheeler, which he drives cross-country hauling thousands of pounds of cargo. His truck also carries something lightweight, which most truckers don’t carry: a bike.
Next thing you know they’ll be using Cargo Bikes to do inner city deliveries!
Despite the frequent downpours. Nothing seems to stop tourists from walking the Brooklyn Bridge!
Usually the bridge is jammed with vendors selling water, tee shirts and hawking Bikes to Rent, not today!
Glad to hear good news with the bad. The end of The Recumbent Blog…..maybe?
First things first. We had to call a halt to the Recumbentblog in March when Penny got terribly ill. Many tests, hospitals and ambulances later (I’ve lost track), and after what seemed like every scan known to man, she has gradually recovered… despite the fact that nobody seems to have any definitive idea of what happened to her! She is well enough now that we have been for several recumbent rides. Thanks to all of you who showed such concern over her wellbeing.
